Gift Giving CPS Style!!

Good morning friends!! It's a beautiful morning here in Southwestern Montana!!! The temperature is a balmy 37 degrees and the moon looks spectacular shining in the clouds. My sweet hubby had to go to work early and so I was up early enough to catch a glimpse of that glorious sight!!! What an amazing God we have to paint such beautiful pictures for us to enjoy!! It is so important to take a minute to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day, even at 4:00 in the morning!

Today I want to share a little gift I made for my sweet Mother-in-Law using the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week. Here's the sketch:
and here's my take on the sketch:
This little pocket card is inspired by Betsy Veldman and is full of little tags, bookplates, and book marks and is perfect for those who love to read!! I used my January Little Red Scrapbook kit and Papertrey Ink's All Booked Up stamp set!
Supplies Used:
Little Red Scrapbook January Kit featuring Bo Bunny Olivia papers
PTI Cardstock: Rustic Cream
PTI stamps: All Booked Up, Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers
PTI Dies: Limitless Labels, Mat Stack 3, Bookmark, Jar Label, and Tag Sale 1
PTI Ink: Dark Chocolate
Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger: Worn Lipstick, Crushed Olive and Brushed Corduroy
PTI Felt: Ocean Tides and Simply Chartreuse

Kristii, I love it and the papers you used. I am going to have to lift it to use as a gift box for William when he has a good day in school. With prizes like making a video, extra computer time. I don't mean to belittle you precious work but I need all the help I can get with him!
